Toby Witt, 46, of Lake City, has a platform of fiscal conservatism and wants to bring experience he said hes garnered running paramedic services in neighboring Hamilton County to the Columbia County Commission. I want to control the spending I want to actually bring conservative leadership to the county commission from somebody that doesnt just say hes conservative but believes it, Witt said. This will make Witts fourth run at the commission over 12 years. Im a lifelong resident here, I grew up on the family farm so my familys been here for generations as well, Witt said.

A petition filed in the Third Judicial Circuit on Monday seeks an injunction striking Tucker from the ballot, citing uncertainty about whether he lives in District 10 and meets the city charters eligibility requirements. The challenge comes from former District 10 candidate Glenel Bowden, who withdrew from the race to support Tuckers other opponent, Vanessa George. The integrity of the election process is whats at stake, Bowden said. If thats tainted, the end result is tainted. The case has been assigned to Judge Mark Feagle. The Lake City charter requires City Council candidates to live in their respective districts for at least one year before qualifying. In his candidacy paperwork, Tucker listed his address as 923 NE Coldwater Ave., swearing under penalty of perjury that the information was accurate.

Thanks for reading.I told the doctor I broke my leg in two places. He told me to quit going to those places. Henny Youngman, 1906-1998, U.S. comedian History in the makingBy COREY ARWOODcarwood@lakecityreporter.comGenerations of students gathered in a college lecture hall for a longtime local history professors symbolic last, first day of class. American History Professor Noah Lindsays final lecture was taken down for posterity by Florida Gateway College. The colleges video production staff recorded his hour-plus lecture with two cameras and a photographer. Lindsay first taught at what was formerly known as Lake City Junior College beginning 1965. Students from his first class were there to commemorate his last lecture. A former assistant Lake City city manager, and executive director of the Olustee Festival, Faye Warren sat in the second row while Lindsay handed out lecture materials. Two prominent attorneys, Marlin Feagle and retired judge Vernon Douglas, plus a district school board member, Keith Hudson, sat in the front row and answered questions about former presidents. The lecture was real, but the students were made of up FGC faculty and staff, Lindsays friends, his peers and also former students. Some of them go back 50 years, Lindsay said. It was both tribute and send off to the 85-year-old professor and he began class just as he would with any group of incoming college students. I think I was able to maintain for the most of this the illusion that there will be a class on Thursday, but there wont be, said Lindsay. This was a performance, a re-creation shall we say, of one of my first classes when I meet students for the first time in their semester. During the lecture Lindsay launched into the same topics he had with hundreds of students over his decades teaching history. After his lecture there was a reception prepared by library staff, with cake, punch and a board with photos and article clippings from his time both teaching and as a library official. From 1975-1988 Lindsay served as Lake City Community College library director. Ive had two careers here, he said. Between his time at the college Lindsay had numerous stints overseas teaching English and performing various roles in libraries in the Middle East, Europe and South America. He said during a fouryear period when he was not employed by the college he served as the first librarian at Columbia Correctional Institution in 1991-1995. Along with former pupils, Lindsay said some attending his last lecture were friends. Some of them may know me as an actor in High Springs Theater. Ive been in several productions there, small roles, he said. And I love to sing in my church choir although I dont have much voice left anymore. Retiring at 85, and residing in Lake City, Lindsay said his plan were now to continue volunteering at Niblack Elementary School. I may do a little traveling. I certainly plan to volunteer, Lindsay said. Long-time FGC history prof Lindsay delivers last lecture.It was both trib ute and send-off to the 85-year-old professor and he began class just as he would with any group of incoming college students. Its too late to strike Tuckers name from the physical ballots, which have already been printed. But if Tucker is found ineligible, the Columbia County Supervisor of Elections would post signs at the polls stating votes for him will not count. Tucker himself has said he only stays at the Coldwater Avenue home one or two nights a week, spending most nights taking care of his 86-year-old mother at her house at 1356 NE Washington St. The owner of the Coldwater Avenue property, Caroline D. McCray of Colorado, says Tucker isnt on the lease and has no right to live there. One of the two official tenants, Willie James Bradley, said in late June that Tucker never lived there backing down on a claim he made a day prior. Bowden said its insulting to the intelligence of District 10 voters for Tucker to pretend he lives there. And for him to do that is just wrong, he said. Bowden raised the issue at Monday nights City Council meeting, encouraging officials to lobby the Third Circuit State Attorneys Office to pursue a criminal investigation. Fred Koberlein Sr., who was filling in for City Attorney Fred Koberlein Jr., said doing so would be inappropriate because the council might eventually have to work with Tucker. Tucker has previously told the Lake City Reporter he would withdraw from the race due to the controversy, but has yet to do so. Its ultimately up to the courts to decide whether a candidate is disqualified, according to a memo from the city attorney. The city clerks office handles the candidate qualification process, per an agreement with the Columbia County Supervisor of Elections. But the city clerk only performs a ministerial function in reviewing a candidates paperwork and cannot determine whether the contents are accurate, according to the memo. Tucker said he moved to the Coldwater Avenue address in February 2017. In late June, Bradley said Tucker had been living there off and on for about eight months. The next day, Bradley walked back on the statement, saying Tucker didnt live there. Bradley said he originally lied to protect Tucker, his friend. Tucker says McCray pressured Bradley into claiming he didnt live there. Tucker maintains he rents a room at Bradleys house for $400 every couple of weeks. In June, McCray said she had visited the property eight months prior and saw no traces of Tucker. State law defines a permanent residence at somewhere that a person has his or her true, fixed and permanent home and principal establishment to which, whenever absent, he or she has the intention of returning. COUNCILContinued From 1A College for his paramedic certification. Hes been a first responder for 21 years. Starting out in Columbia County he said he moved on to private EMS services and now is EMS director of Hamilton County. When I first got to Hamilton County the net cost to the taxpayer was running about $700,000 to 750,000, he said. Ive cut that without cutting service to just under $500,000. However, he said its spending in Columbia County he wants to control. One project he has his eye on is the proposed $28 million jail the county commission is currently promoting along with a one-percent sales tax increase. I think we can do a better job at controlling spending, I dont think we have a revenue problem, I think we have a spending problem, he said. To do that, Witt proposed increasing revenue and controlling costs. We need a jail but we need a jail we can afford, he said. We need to make county government live like the taxpayer has to live. You need to prioritize big spending projects and make sure youre getting the best bang for your buck on those spending projects and you need to be conservative.

To the Editor: Much has been written in the last year about Sam Oosterhoudts mitigation bank. I was involved in permitting the bank through the Army Corps (ACOE) and The Florida Department of Environmental Regulation. It took about 5 years to get all the permits. Now, 9 years after work began on the project, the phosphate company (then PCS now Nutrien) petitioned the state to shut down the mitigation bank. I do not know for sure, but, Nutrien may tell you that during the recent sale of PCS and the review of mineral interests owned, they discovered that the mitigation bank had snuck in there and set up shop over their minerals. This probably has some truth to it but I think there is a much more involved reason. In Hamilton County, Nurtrien/ PCS is planning to run out of phosphate to mine in about 10 years, give or take a few years either way. I do not believe they are planning on shutting the doors and leaving. Occidental Chemical Company started mining in Hamilton County about 1966, I began work there in 1974 as a prospecting geologist. In the mid-seventies, they made an effort to get mining permits in Columbia County, including the Osceola National Forest, and were turned down. About 1979 and 1980 Occidental built a maintenance facility near St. James Church in Columbia County. I worked there and had several drill rigs and hand drilling crews working there for those two years. We drilled prospect holes over thousands of acres, much of it on the mining pattern of 330 centers in every direction until we hit areas of no phosphate. Thousands and thousands of acres met their mining criteria then. I can tell you the heart of the deposit is north and south of Lassie Black Road from east of Falling Creek to US 441 and east and west of US 441 for several miles south of that intersection then north to Deep Creek. With their ability to mine a lower grade product and make use of formally waste products, the minable area has to have expanded dramatically. There is no doubt in my mind that Nutrien is planning to try for mining permits again in Columbia County. Because of the years it will take to get a permit and because they need to keep the chemical plant open in Hamilton County, they need to start their planning sooner rather than later. Besides the State and the Army Corps, they have to get permits from Columbia County. Rest assured the planning department at the mine is preparing for this and expect them to begin making the process public in the next several years. I cannot say I did not enjoy working at the mine, I cannot say Nutrien/PCS hasnt been generous to Hamilton County and I cannot say that the mine did not provide jobs and people havent benefited. I cannot say I havent learned about the effects and problems associated with over pumping from the aquifer. I can say this though; for all that phosphate and after 50+ years of mining, we are still one of the poorest counties in the state. Coincidence or not, White Sulphur Spring in White Springs lost much of its historic flow in the 1970s and essentially quit flowing in the 1980s. Along with the spring, we lost an opportunity for economic growth. There is no doubt in my mind that the mine caused this. About 8 or so years ago the Suwannee River Water Management District commissioned a study which stated that water use in the Jacksonville/Fernandina (mainly the Jacksonville Electric Authority, JEA), areas along the coast has caused water levels in Columbia County to drop drastically over the years. Initially scientists at the Saint Johns Water Management District agreed with this, which resulted in firings, shuffling around of people and then when the proper people were in place, a new statement saying there was not enough data to come to the conclusion the SRWMD reached. The Water Management Districts were established about 1976 with the sole purpose of being the experts on our surface and ground water. Millions and millions of dollars have been spent over the last 40 or so years collecting water data. You have to ask yourself, were they collecting the wrong data all that time. The phosphate mine and chemical plant now use about 20 million gallons a day and unlike a farmer, Nutrien uses that amount every day all year long, decade after decade. The Floridan aquifer in this phosphate region has a really slow rate of recharge, so the phosphate company not only mines phosphate but also water. Any large water use in the phosphate rich area of Columbia County is also going to affect Falling Creek, which is in the water shed of the Itchetucknee Spring and River. Mining in the area will also affect Robinson Branch and Deep Creek. Dont be like Hamilton County, when White Springs dried up, the most the citizens, government and Water Management District could do was a collective shrug of the shoulders and for decades have this persistent nagging feeling they should have paid more attention. Part of that reason is the feeling of being held for ransom because of the jobs that were now available. Columbia County is booming, there might be temporary jobs while the plants are being built in the county but after that, the same people that work in Hamilton County will now be working in Columbia County. No net job gain but a lot to lose. Dennis J.

Todd Wilson, Publisher Robert Bridges, Editor Dink NeSmith, President Tom Wood, ChairmanLETTERS TO THE EDITOR ANOTHER OPINIONPainful lesson in LondonPerhaps its no longer a matter of if, but of when, and under what circumstances, Theresa Mays career as prime minster comes to a humiliating end in Britain. The resignations of David Davis, the cabinet minister overseeing Brexit, and Foreign Minister Boris Johnson, within a day of one another have seen to that. The only remaining question is, now what? Arguments among the Tories over what to do about Europe, and Britains place in the geography, are not new. The British have traditionally not considered themselves really a part of the continent, as expressed in a famous headline in The Times: Fog in channel, Europe cut off. More recently, suspicion of Europe is what brought down Margaret Thatcher three decades ago, victim of a coup launched by her own disloyal ministers. The problem then as now is that the British people are far more skeptical of a united Europe than the toffs who make up much of the Tory leadership. (Theres a certain similarity to the endless tantrum of the elites in our own country.) Mrs. May seemed like a workable replacement for David Cameron, who resigned after the British people surprised the world and perhaps even themselves by voting to extricate Britain from Europe. Like most of the Cameron government, she didnt want to leave the bureaucratic comfort of the European Union, but she wasnt a fanatic about it. She looked like the leader who could unite the Tories. One of her first moves was to call a national election, which looked at the time like smart politics but turned out, not to put too fine a point on it, not to be. She hired several out-of-work consultants to Barack Obama, of all people, to help the Conservative Party write a platform, and this revealed her to be a nanny-stater on steroids. A historic victory turned out to be a rout, coming close to restoring a Labour government. She has managed Brexit badly, taking baby steps only when forced to, and eager to appease the financial sector, the trade unions, and the Germans instead of delivering what the people voted for. Rather than marching ahead bravely, as Churchill or Mrs. Thatcher would have done, she gave the diehard opponents of leaving the EU the time to develop plots to undo the will of the people. Its clear now that she has never been serious about leaving the European Union. The British people voted to leave not because they were tired of immigrants stealing their jobs which was how the international left spun it but because they were tired of European bureaucrats in Brussels, taking orders from Berlin, chipping away at the centuries-old British tradition of self-government. What Boris Johnson and David Davis, either of whom would be an improvement at No. 10 Downing Street, seemed to be saying with their stunning resignations is no more mollycoddling the remainers. The Conservative government in London must deliver what it promised, however reluctantly it made the promise. Theresa May must make the next move. She could call an election but that would pull disaster down on her, and make the inept and wrong-headed Jeremy Corbyn the new prime minister. Its always foolish to draw lessons from elections abroad and apply them here, even lessons from our cousins across the Atlantic. Nevertheless, President Trump, Sen. Mitch McConnell and the several contenders waiting for Rep. Paul Ryan to leave the scene as promised, should take the Brexit betrayal to heart: If youre going to do something radical and disruptive, as the people demand, you had better have a very good plan ready with competent people prepared to execute it, or a very good excuse for betrayal. Will Nutrien drill here? Associated PressTo the Editor: I am so proud of our U.S. Navy Seals who were in Thailand helping with the rescue of the children from the dark, dangerous, deadly caves. Americans constantly travel internationally to offer humanitarian aid in devastating situations. Our country is known around the world for our compassion, generosity and caring. There is another quite serious situation right here in American where thousands of immigrant children are trapped in caves of fear, panic, despair and emotional devastation when they are separated from their parents. Our country is better than this. Our Heavenly Father who ordained the birth of this great country also ordained the family. He designed it so children are nurtured and loved by their parents. Are these children to spend the rest of their lives in prison? What will happen to them? Please look at your child and think about how he or she would feel if she were taken from you and put in a prison with strangers who did not even speak his or her language. May our merciful and loving Heavenly Father who we know and love step into this situation and heal these families. Nora Parnell Lake CityMay God help immigrant families

Employee Health Sleeping is one of the great pleasures in life, unless you have bad dreams or nightmares. Then its pure misery. Most of us do dream while sleeping, we just dont remember it. Luckily, a man named Larry Page remembered his dream. He waas a computer scientists and he woke up from a dream when he was 23 wondering if there was a way to download the web and rank webpages by inbound links. He went on to become a co-founder of Google! Pages net worth according to Forbes is 52 billion dollars. Talk about making money when you sleep! So why cant you remember your dreams? Our brains are trained to forget non-essential facts and the truth is, most of our dreams arent that unique. But I bet you do wake up and recall the bizarre scary dreams, dont you? This is because your brain finds it more essential to remember these strange or scary images. They stand out. Here are some other little known facts about dreaming that you may be interested in. By the way, if youd like a longer version of this article, its at my website. If you lost sight later in life, you can like still see images in your dreams and dream visually like when you had your eyesight. Those folks who were born with blindness may not see in pictures but can still dream and experience sounds, touch sensations and emotions during their dream state. With Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), several brain regions are involved including the amygdala where dopamine, norepinephrine and serotonin play a role. PTSD nightmares may occur with or without REM sleep. If you have asthma, for some reason, you are also more prone to nightmares. The bad dreams can intensify with many treatments, including montelukast. Heartburn medications such as ranitidine and famotidine used to treat heartburn can sometimes induce vivid dreams and nightmares. So can allergy drugs like diphenhydramine. Blood pressure pills interfere with sleep. This category has well-documented evidence to show how they trigger nightmares and this side effect alone often causes people to seek other treatments. If you grew up with black and white TVs, most of your dreams occur in black and white. Anxiety is the most common emotion during dreams. You might experience it as falling, flying or feeling unprepared or humiliated in your dream. Dogs dream. You will often hear them whimper or see their paws twitching. More than likely they are running in their dreams. Sleeping pills can and often due induce vivid dreaming and nightmares. Withdrawal from these medications can also induce higher dreaming and/ or nightmares for a period of time. Antidepressants such as fluoxetine and paroxetine increase serotonin and may trigger intense or disturbing dreams that seem to go on all night. Some sleep supplements containing melatonin might trigger unpleasant or bizarre dreams. If that happens, take a break from the melatonin because the dose might be too high. Remember, you make this sleep hormone yourself so supplementing has an additive effect. Amazing facts about nightmares and dreamingDEAR PHARMACIST Suzy Coheninfo@dearpharmacist.com www.SuzyCohen.com Suzy Cohen is a Colorado-based pharmacist who got her start in Gainesville. The Lake City Reporter was the rst newspaper to carry her column. Global expert on avian influenza wins international awardsFrom UF HealthIlaria Capua, D.V.M., Ph.D., an avian influenza expert and the director of the University of Floridas One Health Center of Excellence for Research and Training, has received two key international awards for career excellence. A professor in UFs Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences with an affiliation in the universitys Emerging Pathogens Institute and the UF College of Veterinary Medicine, Capua has received the 2018 Gerolamo Cardano International Gold Medal from the University of Pavia in Italy. The medal is awarded each year to researchers who have made outstanding contributions to either social and applied sciences or liberal and applied arts, including research that has or could have a significant influence on the world. The medal is given in recognition of professional excellence in the area of virology and public health. At the award presentation on June 21 at the University of Pavia, Capua delivered a lecture on the topic of embracing or undergoing change. Earlier in June, Capua received the Marisa Bellisario Foundations Golden Apple International Award in recognition of her career achievements. This award is given annually to women for exceptional achievements in the pursuit of human rights, peace, solidarity and freedom. Founded by Lella Golfo in 1989, the Bellisario Foundation promotes the professionalism of women in the public and private sectors, recognizing their excellence in the fields of entrepreneurship, business, science and public administration. A veterinarian by training, Capua joined the UF faculty in 2016 after serving three years as a member of the Italian Parliament. Before that, she directed the Division of Biomedical Science at the Istituto Zooprofilattico Sperimentale delle Venezie, an Italian public health institute in Padua, Italy. Since joining UFs faculty, Capua has worked to expand the definition of One Health, a term generally used to describe the integrative efforts of many different health-related disciplines working locally, nationally and internationally to enhance human, animal and environmental health. Frequently, the term is applied to efforts aimed at zoonotic diseases, or diseases of animals that are transmissible to humans and vice versa. Capua hopes to broaden the One Health concept to include the influence of other disciplines, such as art, economics, engineering and law. One project she recently launched at UF is a traveling art show featuring scientific images taken at the microscopic level. These images have been placed in 20 buildings across the UF campus and will be moved to different venues as a way to engage faculty, staff and students in the project and encourage dialogue about how art and science connect. Capua also has been able to obtain a valuable collection of Zika virus samples obtained from the Florida epidemic from 2015 to 2016. She has worked extensively with the Florida Department of Health to collect and analyze the samples to better understand how the epidemic was managed, with the goal of ultimately improving public health outcomes. In addition, she spearheaded creation of a new certificate program in One Health that will launch in the spring of 2019. The program will create an interdisciplinary community of students and faculty, with participants exposed to cross-cutting topics, such as ethics in health care, legislative and regulatory issues, the implications of trade on the spread of disease and more. We will take this group of students and expose them to topics which are as useful to an engineer as they are to a veterinarian as they are to a mathematician or an artist, Capua said. Basically, we want to expose them to areas around which they can then work in teams. Capua Dont miss a single play.Game recap and more everyday in your

The union says that the new policy, which the league imposed without consultation with the NFLPA, is inconsistent with the collective bargaining agreement and infringes on players rights. The filing met a statute of limitations deadline and will be heard by an independent arbitrator, an NFLPA spokesman said. In May, the NFL approved its national anthem policy at its owners meetings in Atlanta. The policy allows players to protest during the national anthem by staying in the locker room, but forbids them from sitting or taking a knee if theyre on the field or the sidelines.

By STEVE DOUGLASAssociated PressST. PETERSBURG, Russia Theyre young, theyre brash and theyre collectively worth a billion dollars. The one thing missing for this French squad is an international title. Kylian Mbappe, Paul Pogba and France are about to get that chance. Les Bleus are headed to the World Cup final. Samuel Umtiti clinched a 1-0 win over Belgium and earned the approval of watching French President Emmanuel Macron in the VIP seats at St. Petersburg Stadium by scoring on a header off a corner kick in the 51st minute on Tuesday. Vive la France! Vive la Republique! France forward Antoine Griezmann shouted during postgame celebrations. Umtiti played his part in a strong defensive effort by the French, too, helping to shut out the highest-scoring team at the tournament and leaving Belgiums golden generation of Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku to regret another missed opportunity at a major tournament. Its me that scored, Umtiti said, but we all delivered a big game.

Or when, about 10 minutes later, she stretched for a lunging backhand winner to break at love and take control of the third set, then raised a fist, figuring a berth in her 11th semifinal at the All England Club was close at hand. And after Williams came up with a comeback to beat 52nd-ranked Camila Giorgi of Italy 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 on Tuesday, she headed off Centre Court with her right index finger aloft. Yes, no matter what the rankings or seedings say, no matter how long she was away, Williams still looks capable of playing like someone whos No. 1, just about 10 months after having a baby. Everything right now is a little bit of a surprise. To be here. To be in the semifinals. I mean, I always say I plan on it, I would like to be there, have these goals, Williams said. But when it actually happens, it still is, like, Ten months after having a baby, Serena reaches Wimbledon semifinal.Southgate, England ready to face musicBy RONALD BLUMAssociated PressMOSCOW Gareth Southgate and England are ready to face the music. No other soccer nation dwells on decades of failure quite like the English. Southgate was so demoralized by his penalty kick failure against Germany in the 1996 European Championship semifinals, he avoided The Lightning Seeds Three Lions, the teams official song when it hosted the tournament. Now the song, with its repeated chorus of footballs coming home, is a staple again, No. 5 this week on YouTube UKs top music videos chart with more than 2 million views on the day of Englands last match. Footballs coming home is a song I couldnt even listen to for 20 years, frankly, so for me it has a slightly different feel, Southgate said Tuesday on the eve of Englands World Cup semifinal match against Croatia. But its nice to hear people enjoying it again.

The 25-year-old would have been a restricted free agent next summer with one year left on a deal that will pay him nearly $4.8 million for the 201819 season. Now he is set to stay with the Lightning through the 2026-27 as the teams highest-paid player once the extension kicks in after next year. The two-time All-Star had 39 goals and 100 points with a plus-15 rating last season. He was third in the NHL in points, sixth in assists and tied for ninth in goals. He averaged 19:49 in ice time to lead all forwards for the Lightning.Ronaldo leaving Real Madrid to join Juventus(AP) Cristiano Ronaldo is leaving Real Madrid to join Italian club Juventus in a move expected to benefit the Portugal forwards tax return. Juventus said Tuesday it paid 112 million euros ($131.5 million) for Ronaldo, who signed a four-year deal with the Serie A champions. The move brings an end to a huge ly successful nine-year spell in Spain, and takes him further away from a tax fraud case that may end up costing the Portugal forward more than $20 million in fines.MLBAMERICAN LEAGUE East Division W L P ct GB Bost on 63 29 .685 New Y ork 59 30 .663 2 Tampa Ba y 46 44 .511 16 Tor onto 41 48 .461 20 Baltimore 25 66 .275 37 Cen tral Division W L P ct GB Cleveland 49 40 .551 Minnesota 40 48 .455 8 Detr oit 40 53 .430 11 Chicago 30 60 .333 19 Kansas C ity 25 65 .278 24 West D ivision W L P ct GB Houston 61 32 .656 Sea ttle 57 34 .626 3 Oakland 51 40 .560 9 Los A ngeles 46 45 .505 14 Te xas 40 52 .435 20 NATIONAL LEA GUE East Division W L P ct GB Atlan ta 50 39 .562 Philadelphia 50 39 .562 Washingt on 45 45 .500 5 New Y ork 36 52 .409 13 Miami 38 55 .409 14 Cen tral Division W L P ct GB Milw aukee 54 37 .593 Chicago 51 37 .580 1 St Louis 46 43 .517 7 Pittsbur gh 42 48 .467 11 Cincinna ti 40 51 .440 14 West D ivision W L P ct GB Ar izona 50 41 .549 Los A ngeles 49 41 .544 San F rancisco 48 45 .516 3 Color ado 46 44 .511 3 San Diego 39 54 .419 12 Monda ys Games Baltimore 5, N.Y.

The 30,842-seat stadium would be the smallest in Major League Baseball and would be covered by a fully enclosed and translucent roof, not a retractable dome. Stuart Sternberg, principal owner of the Rays since 2005, called the plan a dramatic break from the past and explained the blueprint as the franchises latest attempt to make a long-term commitment to the region. That has the best opportunity to happen here in Tampa, at the center of the Tampa Bay region, Sternberg said. We believe that baseball cannot only survive but thrive here in Tampa, and Tampa Bay, and all the growth that comes ahead of us. When the song first was released, the chorus proclaimed Three lions on a shirt/Jules Rimet still gleaming/Thirty years of hurt/never stopped me dreaming. A 1998 update changed the third verse to no more years of hurt. England hasnt played in the semifinals of a major tournament since Southgates penalty kick at Wembley was saved by Andreas Koepke 22 years ago, and Andrea Moeller put the next kick over David Seaman and under the crossbar. The most-cherished national team memory remains the 1966 World Cup final victory at Wembley over West Germany, a demarcation point in the islands history as much as 1066 (the Norman invasion) and 1707 (union with Scotland). It was a long time ago, so not too many of us can remember that far back, said midfielder Jordan Henderson, born in 1990. The winner Wednesday advances to Sundays final against France. Southgate wants to break stereotypes, and not just on the field. Im rare breed. Im an Englishman that doesnt drink tea, he said. England and Croatia are teams that innovated over time but have generally been immutable during the World Cup, sticking to virtually identical starting lineups except for group phase finales, after advancement was secure. In the other four games, Croatias only variable to its 4-2-3-1 formation was whether to start captain Luka Modric in a deep midfield role and Andrej Kramaric more advanced, or to move up Modric and start Marcelo Brozovic. Right back Sime Vrsaljko limped off during the quarterfinal win over host Russia and goalkeeper Danijel Subasic had a hamstring injury during extra time but remained in the match. When asked about injuries, Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic responded through a translator with inconclusive palaver about Vrsaljko having this niggle. England has gone with a 3-5-2, and the only change was to start Ruben LoftusCheek in midfield after Dele Alli injured a thigh. The biggest thing that the gaffers brought since hes come in, which hes brought right from day one, was identity, and about the way that we wanted to create a team, Henderson said. You can see that togetherness on the pitch now, and I think thats valuable in crucial moments in big games, and yeah, I can definitely say this is most together England team that Ive been involved in, and so I think that makes a massive difference and you get your rewards for that. With an average age of 26, England is one of the youngest teams at the World Cup. We were never quite sure how far this team could go, Southgate said. The age of the players, the improvement in the players, the hunger in the players has been apparent for everybody to see. Were really proud in the style that weve played, with the intelligence that weve played, and that weve performed under pressure and dealt with difficult situations in games where weve had to wait until the last minute to score, weve had to recover from conceding in last minute, weve been through extra time, penalties. Croatia made its only semifinal appearance in 1998, losing 2-1 to host France. Defender Dejan Lovren is a teammate of Hendersons on Champions League finalist Liverpool, and Lovren bristled when asked about a 4-1 loss at Tottenham last October when England striker Harry Kane scored twice. Its completely irrelevant, he said through a translator. Why didnt you ask me how I played well against him? You are just nitpicking my poor performances. MUSIC Continued From 1Brounded by yellow-clad security. They certainly hope to keep the party going on Sunday in the final in Moscow. France with an average age of 26 will face either Croatia or England, who play Wednesday at the Luzhniki Stadium in the Russian capital, and has a shot at redemption after losing its last two major finals at the 2006 World Cup when Zinedine Zidane was sent off for a nasty head-butt and the 2016 European Championship on home soil. Were immensely privileged to be in the World Cup final, France coach Didier Deschamps said. It was so painful two years ago we have to savor it. Deschamps now has the chance to become the third person to win the World Cup as a player and a coach, after German great Franz Beckenbauer and Brazils Mario Zagallo. As France captain, Deschamps raised soccers most prized trophy in 1998. Deschamps has faced some criticism for being too pragmatic and functional despite having a squad of superstars, but his team was set up superbly against an opponent that was largely restricted to only minor chances and denied on two occasions in particular by France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris. He dived to his right midway through the first half to claw away Toby Alderweirelds shot, then got in front of Lukaku to punch away one of the many crosses sent in by Belgium in the final stages. In a tournament dominated by goals from set pieces, Frances goal came off a corner when Griezmann curled in the ball from the right and Umtiti got in front of tall Belgium midfielder Marouane Fellaini to knock in his header at the near post. Up in the corporate seats, president Macron reacted to the goal by shaking the hand of King Philippe of Belgium as FIFA president Gianni Infantino watched on between them. Unfortunately for us, the difference is just a dead-ball situation, a set play, Belgium coach Roberto Martinez said. The game was, as you can imagine, very close, very tight, and it was going to be decided (on) maybe the one that could find that final touch in the box. After reaching the quarterfinals at both the 2014 World Cup and the European Championship in 2016, Belgium again missed the chance to get to an international final and has yet to fulfil its lofty expectations. Leading the scoring in this tournament with 14 goals, many thought this could be their year. Instead of a trip to Moscow, Belgium will return to St. Petersburg on Saturday for the third-place match no team wants to play. FRANCE Continued From 1BFRANCISCO SECO/Associated PressEnglands Harry Maguire, center, celebrates with his teammates after scoring his side opening goal during the quarterfinal match between Sweden and England at the 2018 soccer World Cup in the Samara Arena on Saturday in Samara, Russia.

Carl is attentive, caring and always puts the needs of our family rst. You could say he is everyones dream husband. Long story short, I cheated on him while I was on vacation. It started as innocent irtation, but then it went further. When Brad kissed me, I knew it wasnt going to stop there. Aerward, I not only didnt feel guilty, I did it again. I have been quietly communicating with Brad and sent him revealing photos and a graphic video of myself. He loved it, and we plan to meet again soon. Please help me understand why I am cheating on such a wonderful husband. Shouldnt I feel guilty? What can I do to stop this before it gets out of control and Carl nds out? I really dont want to lose him. -DONT FEEL GUILTY DEAR DONT FEEL GUILTY: I have a ash for you. is ing is already out of control. While the excitement may have gone out of your marriage, I guarantee that when Carl gets wind of this -start the countdown now -youll have an abundance of it. If you really value your marriage, start devoting as much energy to working on it as you have been directing toward Brad. And pray that Brad is a good enough sport to delete the incriminating photos and video. DEAR ABBY: I am in love with a man who is 28 years younger than I am. Ill call him Albert. We want to get married, but Im not sure how much the age dierence really matters. We have been seeing each other for almost a year, and I know he loves me. We havent told anyone except a few people. My son, 28, and my daughter, 40, dont know how serious we are. My granddaughter knows everything. I know my children may object because of the age dierence and the fact that Albert is from another country (in Africa). To me, that doesnt matter, and it may not to them, but Albert is worried that Immigration may question us. We are both private people, and we want to be together as husband and wife. I cant give him children, but there are other ways we can have a child of our own. I want my kids to be happy for me. I really need to know what you think. -LOST IN LOVE IN NORTH CAROLINA DEAR LOST: at Albert is afraid of the questions Immigration might ask raises a red ag for me.

6B WE DNESDAY, JULY 11, 2018 SPORTS LAKE CITY REPORTER players dont comply and will have the option of punishing players. When the league announced the policy, Commissioner Roger Goodell called it a compromise aimed at putting the focus back on football after a tumultuous year in which television ratings dipped nearly 10 percent; some blamed the protests for such a drop. The union said at that time that it would file a grievance against any change in the collective bargaining agreement. The union said Tuesday it has proposed having its executive committee talking to the NFL instead of proceeding with litigation. The union said the NFL has agreed to those discussions. The NFL declined to comment about the unions action. In 2016, then-49ers quarterback, Colin Kaepernick began protesting police brutality and social injustice by kneeling during the national anthem, and the demonstration spread to other players and teams. It became one of the most controversial and sensitive issues in the NFL, with players saying their messages last year were being misconstrued, while others including President Donald Trump called them unpatriotic. Trump even said NFL owners should fire any player who refused to stand during the anthem. Following those comments, more than 200 players protested during the anthem that weekend before the number of protesters dwindled as the season progressed. Were here for a bigger platform, Raiders tight end Jared Cook said during the spring. Were not just athletes. Were people that live this. Its people in our neighborhood, its people that we grew up with, its people that we know who are actually living through these circumstances. So when we speak on it, its not like were just speaking out of the side of our neck. Its things that actually touch home and things that we can actually relate to. All I have to say is, I just think its sad that its veered from something that stood for good and the whole narrative has changed into something thats negative when that was not what it was initially about in the first place. The NFL started requiring players to be on the field for the anthem in 2009 the year it signed a marketing deal with the military. We want people to be respectful of the national anthem. We want people to stand, Goodell said at the May meetings, when he dismissed concerns about the lack of union involvement by contending the league met with countless players over the past year. Weve been very sensitive on making sure that we give players choices, the commissioner added, but we do believe that moment is an important moment and one that we are going to focus on. The league and the Players Coalition have been working in tandem on efforts to support player initiatives in the community and for a variety of social issues. The NFL is committing $90 million over the next seven years to social justice causes in a three-segment plan that involves league players. ANTHEM Continued From 1BWow, this is really happening. So what if shes still getting her game in gear? So what if Giorgi wouldnt seem to miss while moving out to that early lead? Williams never was worried about losing. Its weird. Sometimes I feel, Man, Im in trouble. Sometimes I feel, I can fight. For whatever reason, today I was so calm, said 36-year-old American, who has been wearing compression leggings as a precaution after a blood-clot scare following her daughters birth. Even when I was down the first set, I thought, Well, shes playing great. Im doing a lot of the right things. Asked whether that might represent a new way of looking at things, Williams smiled. No. Just to be clear, that was just today. I mean, Im hoping this is, like, a new thing, she said. Honestly, I highly doubt it. Next up for Williams as she tries to earn her eighth title at the All England Club and 24th Grand Slam trophy overall will be a match Thursday against No. 13 seed Julia Goerges of Germany, a 3-6, 7-5, 6-1 winner against No. 20 Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands. Its pretty unreal for me, said Goerges, who reached her first major semifinal at a tournament where she exited in the first round each of the past five years. The other semifinal is No. 11 seed Angelique Kerber of Germany vs. No. 12 Jelena Ostapenko of Latvia. Kerber is a former No. 1 who owns two Grand Slam titles and was the runner-up to Williams at Wimbledon two years ago. Ostapenko won last years French Open. Kerber needed seven match points to close out No. 14 Daria Kasatkina of Russia 6-3, 7-5 at Centre Court, while Ostapenko defeated 2014 Australian Open runner-up Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia 7-5, 6-4 at a windy No. 1 Court. After a series of upsets made this edition of Wimbledon the first since it began seeding players in the 1920s that none of the top 10 women reached the quarterfinals, Nos. 11, 12 and 13 are still around. And so is No. 25, Williams. The All England Club seeded her there as a nod to all of her past success at the grass-court major, including titles the last two times she entered, in 2015 and 2016. She missed Wimbledon a year ago because she was pregnant, going about 16 months between Grand Slam tournaments, so her ranking is just outside the top 180. That is going to change now. Told she is guaranteed of rising to 51st next week and higher if she reaches the final or wins the championship Williams joked: Got to keep trekking on, though. Serena Williams, 51? Eh, it doesnt have that same ring to it. The part does, but not the . Williams is 3-0 against Goerges, winning in straight sets each time. Every match starts from zero, Goerges said. Everybody has the same chances to win that match, and Im looking forward to it. After their most recent meeting, in the French Opens third round last month, Williams pulled out of that tournament, citing a chest muscle injury that made it too painful to serve. She went a couple of weeks without practicing serves, and the rest did wonders. She hit one at 122 mph against Giorgi, delivered six of her seven aces in the final set, and won 44 of the last 54 points she served. I messed up too much on my returns, said Giorgi, questioning her decision to stand inside the baseline to receive serve. Rare is the player who can produce Williams sort of pace on serves Giorgis average speeds were actually faster on first and second serves, and she delivered the matchs first three aces and mirror her power in groundstroke exchanges at the baseline. But Giorgi plays with nary a trace of subtlety and more than a bit of abandon, taking risky, flat chops at the ball with serves, returns, forehands and backhands. She harbors no compunction about striving for a point-ending winner with every stroke. When shes calibrating properly, it all can be tough for opponents to handle. Even Williams. Well, for a set, anyway. SERENA Continued From 1BWIMBELDONDel Potro faces challenges in quartersBy SAM JOHNSTONAssociated PressLONDON Juan Martin del Potro faces some major challenges if hes going to go any further at Wimbledon after reaching consecutive Grand Slam quarterfinals for the first time since 2012. First, on Wednesday hell take to the court for a third consecutive day amid concerns over his fitness. Second, his opponent will be two-time Wimbledon champion Rafael Nadal. 2009 U.S. Open champion Del Potro defeated Gilles Simon 7-6 (1), 7-6 (5), 5-7, 7-6 (5) in a match that was carried over to Tuesday to complete the mens quarterfinal lineup at the All England Club. The other matchups see defending champion Roger Federer against Kevin Anderson; Novak Djokovic takes on Kei Nishikori and Milos Raonic meets John Isner in a matchup of big servers. After reaching the French Open semifinals last month, Del Potro who has missed long periods with a career-threatening left wrist injury returned to his career-high ranking of No. 4 for the first time since February 2014, which he acknowledges is a good signal. I dont know if Im better or not, a better player than few years ago, said Del Potro, after returning to the last eight at Wimbledon for the first time since 2013. Im doing a good season already. Im very proud to be in the last eight players of this tournament Del Potros Roland Garros run was ended by eventual champion Nadal. If the Argentine is to make it backto-back last four appearances, he will need to reverse that result on Wednesday. If I want to beat him (Nadal), Del Potro said. I have to come to the net very often and play hard with my forehands, with my backhands, and try to take all the chances. With the fifth-seeded Del Potros fourth-round match the longest mens singles contest of the tournament so far having required to be finished Tuesday, he will be taking to the court for a third consecutive day. Given the fact he withdrew from a pre-Wimbledon event with a groin concern and called the trainer during his match with Simon, Del Potros fitness could be a factor. I think I will be in good condition. Del Potro said. My body feels OK. There is little doubt that Nadal who is playing in the Wimbledon quarterfinals for the first time since 2011 will provide a big test. Before Del Potro and Nadal arrive on Centre Court, three-time champion Novak Djokovic, will get the chance hes been waiting for. Having played three of his matches away from Centre Court, Djokovic asked after his fourth-round win over Karen Khachanov that his meeting with 24th-seeded Nishikori be played in the main stadium. His wish was granted, meaning that top-seeded Federer will play away from Centre Court for the first time in three years. The more gusty conditions on No. 1 Court could make Federers challenge against eighth-seeded Kevin Anderson more complicated. Stretching back to last year, Federer has won 32 consecutive sets at Wimbledon and will break his previous longest streak of 34 if he wins in straight sets. Following Federer on No. 1 Court will be the two biggest servers remaining in the tournament. Ninth-seeded Isner has hit a tournament-high 135 aces on his way to reaching his first Wimbledon quarterfinal. Next in the aces column is his opponent, 2016 runner-up Raonic. The 13th-seeded Raonic has hit 117 aces en route to his fourth last-eight showing at the All England Club. Both players said the match is likely to come down to a few crucial points, but took different tones when asked to suggest where they might have an advantage. I think I can move a little bit better than he can, Raonic said. Isners retort: Im taller than him. Thats all I got for you right now. KIRSTY WIGGLESWORTH/Associated PressJuan Martin Del Potro of Argentina celebrates defeating Gilles Simon of France in their mens singles match at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships July 10 in London.
